    who believes this mother should face the death penalty... i sure do! SAN ANTONIO – The father of a newborn baby who authorities say was mutilated, killed and cannibalized by his mother said Tuesday he wants to see her executed. Scott W. Buchholz told The Associated Press that Otty Sanchez, the mother of 3 1/2-week-old Scotty Wesley Buchholz-Sanchez, seemed fine in the days before the killing, even though they argued. However, he said she told him she had been diagnosed with postpartum depression and was going to be admitted to a hospital for treatment. Sanchez's relatives told The San Antonio Express News that she had been diagnosed with postpartum psychosis, which can cause delusional thoughts and hallucinations. Sanchez, 33, is charged with capital murder in the baby's death and could face the death penalty. When authorities found the infant's body Sunday, Sanchez told officers the devil made her do it, police said. "She killed my son. She should burn in hell," Buchholz said. Otty Sanchez's aunt, Gloria Sanchez, told The Associated Press that her niece had been "in and out" of a psychiatric ward, and that the hospital called several months ago to check up on her. Sanchez was hospitalized Tuesday with self-inflicted stab wounds and was being held on $1 million bail. Police have said she does not have an attorney. Authorities found the baby with three of his toes chewed off, his face torn away and his head was severed. Otty Sanchez's sister and her sister's two children, ages 5 and 7, were in the house at the time, but none were harmed. Sanchez and Buchholz lived together during the pregnancy and the first two weeks after their son was born, he said. An infection complicated Sanchez's recovery from giving birth, and she was required to use a catheter for about a week. That setback darkened her mood, and she was soon diagnosed with postpartum depression. She moved out of the couple's shared home July 20. On Saturday, she showed up to see Buchholz at his parents' house. She became agitated when he told her he needed a copy of the baby's birth certificate and Social Security card, Buchholz said. Sanchez ran out of the home with her son in a car seat, threw the car seat into the front passenger seat of her car and sped away without buckling him in, the San Antonio Express-News reported. She left behind a diaper bag, her purse and her medication. Buchholz's mother called 911, and a sheriff's deputy investigated the incident as a disturbance, according to court records. The next day, authorities said, she killed her son. Officers called to Sanchez's house at about 5 a.m. Sunday found her sitting on the couch screaming "I killed my baby! I killed my baby!" San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said. McManus described the crime scene as so grisly that police officers barely spoke to each other while looking through the house. she ate the baby's nose, 3 toes, and pieces of his brain... she stabbed him repeatedly with a steak knife and skinned him... she also decapitated his head... she blamed it all on the devil of course... it was so bad that the police officers had to receive counseling after seeing the scene. THIS LADY IS SICK!

  • 4What do you do if you are married and had a baby and you think you realize you then don't want the baby?

    My husband and I are both thirty, educated professional, financially secure and we just had a baby three months ago. I was very surprised to find out I was pregnant, we tried once on a whim. I had a tough pregnancy and delivery, and thought I was excited, if a little nervous. I had thoughts of wishing we had waited a little more, but after our daughter was born I thougth those were in the past. Everyone is ecstatic about her, she is the grandbaby on either side, but our families live a couple hours away so they can't help tons. She is a great baby, beautiful and sleeps through the night and a great personality. My husband adores her. I thought I did too. I mean, I know I love her. But this past weekend my parents volunteered to keep her overnight Saturday. When we went to get her Sunday she was sick and she can't go to daycare like that, so my mom who stays home said they could keep her until she was better. We thought she would be back by Monday night. However, she is still just too sick to go to daycare (stomach flu). She's been to the doctor and it's nothing serious. My husband keeps talking about how much he misses her. And I do to, but more than that I am realizing how nice it is to go out to dinner without her, sleep in a little later since I don't have to get her ready for daycare, or pick her up after work, etc. It's not that my husband doesn't help out. In fact, sometimes he seems to do more than I do. And it's not that she is a hard baby...she's not colicky, doesn't cry for no reason, she sleeps from eight at night until seven the next morning and we get compliments on her all the time. She is a dream baby, so why is my feeling one of freedom and relief, and not of sharp misery that she is gone? I can't see in our position saying we made a mistake, someone adopt her. My husband adores her. It would kill him. But I have watched TV shows in the past where the mom sobs about giving up her child to someone and I cried to thinking how I could never do that. But today I realized, I think I could. If I knew she was somewhere great, safe and well-cared for, I think it would be a relief. Has anyone ever felt like this? Or am I a horrible mother?

    Im in Eltroxin to treat my thyroid . The symptoms have not disappeared, and since I'm currently in college, my doctor informed me that I had difficulty concentrating and socializing . I've done some research on low thyroid and, unfortunately , can cause side effects such as dyslexia and ADD ... so that would explain my recent failure in my courses . I have been taking concerta, with the dose of 54 mg . What is a fairly high dose . I take my medication at around 8 am , and it takes about an hour for the effect to take place. It only lasts a couple of hours I think, and also gives me worse anxiety. I sit on the edge , severe insomnia , and just does nothing for my attention span . I guess even take this medicine with my thyroid medication ? Another recent update of my
